I am not going to deny it. I fell in love in Bali. I fell in love with Bali. I love Bali. Back in Los Angeles I continue to think about her. I guess that’s when you know you’re in love. I’ve tried to shake it off. I’ve tried to explain it to myself that LA is my true love. But so is Bali…
I guess being in love isn’t a bad thing. Better to love than not to love at all.
Here are some pictures to help me explain why Bali is my love…and why I think about her daily.
A lot has happened in the last 2 months since coming back from Bali. I’ve moved to Los Angeles to live out a dream! I guess you can say, I’m livin’ the dream. I think the older you get, the more initiative you have to do what you’ve always wanted to do before it’s too late and life passes you by. Why did I move to Los Angeles? I think I’ll save that story for another blog.
I’ve created some new videos of my experience in Bali and I have to say, Bali is magical!
Here are some past photos I’ve been posting on Instagram. My bad I haven’t been blogging! But I will pick it back up within the next couple of weeks. Be sure to subscribe and follow me on Instagram for the latest.
After two years of aspirations and surfing domestically, it’s time to travel into international waters, Indonesia. Dreams of Indo are being realized and I have one goal in mind, surf. After working my ass off for the last 4 years and training at my local break almost every day, my mind, body and mental state are ready to take on world class waves.
I am certain my surfing will be in tip top shape after surfing heavy close outs almost every day at Ocean Beach. Bali’s waves are longer, consistent and dreamy. I can already see myself shredding in and out of the curl and pulling back to get barreled.
I will be spending over a week in Indo and I plan to hit up most of the South West of the island. My first stop is to check in our villa and head out. I will be bringing my 5’9″ Tomo Firewire Vanguard 2. This baby will do nicely.
My Indo Surf List
Stay tuned for some insane shots. And don’t worry, I will be bringing you along, just be sure to follow on Instagram for up to date video clips of my trip. Watch me live out a dream. Barreled in Bali.
Northern California offers a balance between urban wilderness and scenic peaceful landscape. I’ve been showing you many parts of the natural landscape outside of the urban areas. San Francisco is a busy, bustling epicenter for business, innovation and liberal lifestyles. You can literally live any way you want without much judgement. As long as you’re not imposing your own lifestyle upon others.
I’ve always appreciated The Bay Area For it’s diversity and freedom to be who you are. There’s no right way or wrong way of living.
In this photo spread by Matt Morton, it captures the urban jungle. Getting lost in San Francisco is similar to disconnecting through surf.
Matt’s perspective and creativity provides so much of what I love about home. There’s always an opportunity for adventure.
